Notes for Guinea

* A Licence requiring four years of study may be acceptable; however, the Licence is usually conferred after only three years of post secondary study. The Maîtrise, Diplôme d’Etudes supérieures (DES) or Diplôme d’Ingénieur are an additional year beyond the Licence, and more likely to be considered equivalent to a four-year Canadian
undergraduate degree.
** The Diplôme d’Etudes Approfondies (DEA) is conferred after at least one year beyond completion of the Maîtrise.
